government workers were given of taxpayer money to your taxes to allow green energy company to great prosperity. that path is a disaster. balancing the government books is not what matters most. government is not the and all and be all. the health of america is not about government at all. balancing the books as a nice goal but that is not our primary objective. our objective is to grow the private sector. need to focus our efforts and ideas to grow the american economy, not the government economy. i will talk about a couple of other points but if you take nothing else away from what i say, understand this -- we must not become the party of austerity. we must not be the party of austerity. we must be the party of growth. we know the government is out of control and the public knows that, too, yet we just lost an election. we cannot afford to fight on our terms. the republican party must become the party of growth, the party for a prosperous future based on economic growth, an opportunity based on every community in this great nation and not based in washington, d.c. we have fall into
raise taxes. you have to, at some point, you have to get your fiscal house in order and that means cuts to some of these entitlement programs. >> no it does not. when you talk about getting your fiscal house in order, that's correct, but our republican friends forget to mention that at 15.8%, revenue compared to gdp, that is the lowest percentage in 60 years. when clinton gave us a balanced budget, revenue was about 20%. we have one out of four corporations, profitable corporations not paying a nickel in taxes in america. the effective corporate tax rate today is the lowest it's been since 1972. of course republicans want to cut social security, medicare, medicaid. but i think it is time for large corporations who are not paying a nickel in taxes to start paying their fair share. >> i want to ask you about your vote yesterday on filibuster reform. you voted no. you don't think it goes far enough. why? and is getting something done better than nothing? >> yeah, i think getting something done and making the senate a little more efficient is better than nothing. but at the end of the day,
the county has sued them for violating housing codes and they also received notices for $11,000 in back taxes as well as for unpaid sewer and garbage bills. then to add insult to injury, a debt collector from chase sent them an $84,000 bill for missed mortgage payments on a house that chase told them that they had foreclosed upon. the kellers are not alone. this type of horror store is commonplace, believe it or not. call it the rise of the zombie title. in joseph keller's case, the term is tragically apt because if he can't get his name off the title soon and get his disability to cover a liver transplant, this back from the dead property could literally end his life. their story and others have been chronicled in a special report by reuters reporter michelle con lynn. michelle joins us from new york city to talk about the latest disgraceful chapter in the mortgage crisis. michelle, welcome inside "the war room." >> thank you so much for having me. >> jennifer: you bet. what made you decide to write this story? >> well, i had been covering the whole world of foreclosures for a couple of year

about. the obama administration has sort of taken this tactic in the past, during the payroll tax cut fight, during the student loan fight, really circumventing congress and trying to build a ground swell of support among the people, to pressure congress to get what it wants to get done passed. so in this case, that is the stiffer gun law. so you're going to see vice president biden out today, holding that roundtable, talking about gun legislation. he'll be joined by his cabinet secretaries as well as a democratic senator, tim kaine, to really try to talk to the people about why he thinks this for gun legislation is a good idea. but, of course, as you just mapped out, there is a lot of opposition to this, particularly in states like virginia. so they're hoping to get moderates on their side, so that when this really does go to a fight, they will have the votes in the end. senior administration officials tell me, privately, they think that there is a lot of support for universal background checks and for limiting high-capacity magazines, but, of course, that ban on assault weapons is r
taxes. >> two very different approaches, but which went down better at davos? our correspondent has more. >> angela merkel can be joyful and comical. today, she was not. she was serious while cameron was casual, full of british humor, selling himself and his country, he even got applause during his speech, and although most people here criticized sharply his plans for a referendum, he did not say a lot about this topic today. he sold it as his duty to deliver the referendum to the british citizens. in contrast, angela merkel did not try to be entertaining. she emphasized the common interests of britain and the european union, like structural reforms, free trade agreement with the united states, and make europe more competitive, obviously trying to deal with a new conflict as coolly as possible, a strategy that has brought her a lot of success in the last years. thursday was the day of cameron and merkel. now everybody is heading to one of the numerous parties if they have enough energy, and tomorrow, we will continue the discussion over the role of the central bank's -- banks now and in

this in two buckets. one bucket is reducing costs. the other bucket is increasing taxes. if you think you can get this all done, to the amount we have to do with, let's say, a ten-year program, you're going to have to dig very deep. we need a third bucket and it is sitting right there and we should use it. it is energy. fracking, for example, has created 1.75 million jobs. billions and billions of dollars going to the states and federal coffers. we have more energy than anybody in the world and if we, in an environmentally friendly way, acquire it, go on the federal lands, do it in the right way, we'll get that extra piece of cash, and bring manufacturing and jobs back to the united states or create them in the united states because of our energy. >> the last four years of the obama presidency was marred by not great relationships between the business community and the administration. you are one of the key faces of the business community. have you reached out to the president or has he reached out to you since his election to say let's make this four years look very different? >> just rememb
